- Universal owns the rights (in Japan) to the Japanese theatrical cuts.
- Weinstein owns the rights to the (theoretical) Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair, if it were ever to be released.
Weinstein recently signed a new distribution agreement with Sony. However, Weinstein still owns its own catalog. They didn't sell the movies to Sony. Sony would just distribute them for Weinstein (much as Fox distributes for MGM).
